Banila Co Let Me BeBe BB Cream

BB creams are all the rage in Asia. Most easily comparable to tinted moisturizers, these BBs are sort of an all-in-one product -- foundation, sunscreen, anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, whitening, the list can go on and on.

My recent haul on GMarket included some free samples of Banila Co's Let Me BeBe BB cream.

I have to admit that most people hate me because I don't need to wear foundation, concealer, or powder to keep my skin looking good. I often get compliments of how beautiful it is, and a girl loves compliments. However, for the sake of this blog, I figured it was worth trying at least once.

For reference, I am about a MAC NW10. I'm very pink. My hands are about the same shade as my face.

I opened both samples to swatch -- Sheer is on the left, Nude is on the right/

Confession -- I actually did try Sheer on my face, just to see how it felt and what it looked like. It was just a bit too yellow. Nude looks much more promising, especially when you see my swatches below of the product blended in.

As you can see, Nude has blended in quite nicely, and is pretty close. Sheer is definitely too orange!

The texture is soft, creamy, and blends easily. There is a scent to this, a sort of typical moisturizer scent. Not offensive at all, but I am guessing people with very sensitive skin might not be impressed. This cream has an SPF of 37, so you could easily combine your foundation + sunscreen routine into one step with this.

Hi Valerie, this is very interesting. I'm starting to get into BB creams and love your reviews. May I ask something? Where did you buy this one? The world of asian makeup is new to me and I never really know where to go to buy what.
